Two new businesses will fill the former Kmart space at the Ohio Valley Mall.

Candi Noble-Greathouse, mall marketing director says the announcement will be made sometime early next year.

Belmont County Commissioners worked with the Cafaro Company, along with mall staff, to find something to fill the void.

Kmart closed in January 2017.

Noble-Greathouse says sales were high at the mall on Black Friday and that the mall has seen tremendous growth.
